This installation of works from SFMOMA's painting and sculpture collection is conceived as a series of chapters that illuminate key moments and themes in the art of the 20th century. By presenting a range of conversations among varied works, the exhibition explores the many narratives the museum's collection can suggest about the history of modern art.
Reproductions of several works in this exhibition are available through our Print on Demand program. These archival-quality prints are produced on heavyweight, acid-free paper with high-density inks. View the complete selection in the MuseumStore.
Stop by the second-floor Learning Lounge to experience our iPad video App Artists Working/Artists Talking, a collection of interview clips and studio footage of artists represented in the museum's collection.
